In a statement, Tanaiste Simon Coveney stated, "as countries impose new travel restrictions to combat the spread of COVID-19 there will be more disruption to travel routes. A growing number of countries are also imposing restrictions on entry and exit. Given the consequences for travellers, Irish citizens should exercise a high degree of caution when making travel plans particularly in Europe.

For this reason my Department is now advising against non-essential travel to the Czech Republic, Cyprus, Denmark, Malta, Poland, and Slovakia. We will also be providing additional guidance on Spain, which remains at non-essential travel, while Italy remains at no travel.
